Anyone have a generator I can borrow (this weekend for BlackhawK).

As the title states. I'm helping a buddy this weekend at Blackhawk. He's just getting back into racing, and taking the learning curves again to get his license back (he's been out of the loop for a few years).

Willing to compensate if necessary. Can pickup tomorrow if available...I know it's late notice but I didn't think about it because he didn't pick up warmers yet, and I just looked at the weather, and since it's going to be 95, it'd be nice to get some fans going. Promise she will be well cared for, and returned promptly.

Thanks for the offers folks.

Dave, you'll probably be my best bet as you're closest.

Thanks a ton Steve...if I can't make Dave I'll hit you up. Also, thanks to Matoo for the PM...just a little to far north!!

PatFitz, regardless of which one I pickup, you're welcome to tag team it with me. We're only going to use it for fans, which shouldn't draw too much power.

FYI, mine probably won't power multiple pairs of tire warmers.

It's old and cost me $40, it's perfect for one set of warmers.
